Hamas says gets Saudi promise on continued aid
By Andrew Hammond Sat Mar 11, 4:42 PM ET
RIYADH (Reuters) - Palestinian militant group Hamas said on Saturday that Saudi Arabia had vowed to remain one of the biggest financial backers of the Palestinians, despite U.S. and European threats to cut aid.
Hamas leaders are in Saudi Arabia, the world's biggest oil exporter and birthplace of Islam, on a tour of Arab and other countries seeking support after their surprise win in parliamentary elections in January.
"They affirmed that political and financial aid to the Palestinian Authority and Palestinian people would continue," said Ezzat El-Resheq, a member of Hamas' politburo.
"We believe the Saudi position ... will be extremely important in breaking the embargo that America and Israel want to impose on our people," Resheq said. "It is completely unreasonable to cut off an entire people."
Mr. Resheq, is it just a little "unreasonable" to not just cut off an entire (nation of) people ... but to actually commit a decades long terrorist suicide/homicide bombing campaign designed to eliminate an entire nation of people?
